As the 3D printing space continues its torrid expansion, there is a tremendous amount of information out there for one to learn whether they are operating in a business that’s considering the adoption of the technology, or they’re simply a DIY enthusiast. No matter what your fascination of 3D printing involved, there is one way to make sure you stay on top of the latest trends and industry offerings as well as network with those within the industry and that is to attend one of MecklerMedia’s Inside 3D printing Conferences and Expos.
As someone who has attended many of these events, I can tell you they are well worth the time and the money. This October from the 20th-22nd, if you are in the Santa Clara, California area, you will have have an opportunity to participate in what should be one of MecklerMedia’s largest 3D printing events, Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara, located in the Santa Clara Convention Center which will be part of 3D Print Week California. 3D Print Week will run from October 19-23, and feature several events all over the San Francisco and Silicon Valley area, including the 3D Print Design Show on October 20-21 and the Virtual Reality Summation October 21.
Yesterday MecklerMedia announced an incredible group of keynote speakers for Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara, including Benjamin Schrauwen, Director, Spark Platform and Products for Autodesk; Scott Summit, Design Director for 3D Systems; and Richard Garrity, VP and General Manager for Vertical Solutions. Also they’ve gone ahead and changed the format of the conference tracks this time around, offering a more customizable experience for attendees interested in any of the following categories: medicine, business, manufacturing, metals, scanners, art and more.
Additionally they’ve also announced that this year’s event will feature a partnership with the recently launched Venture Capital firm Asimov Ventures for the Inside 3D Printing Startup Competition on October 22. The competition–which has seen past winners, including 3D Hubs, Wiivv Wearables and Osiris Biomedical take top honors–will this year pit between five and ten startups against each other covering a variety of 3D printing-related verticals. This year’s competition will be a little bit different, however, with a $15,000 uncapped convertible note awarded to the winner via Asimov Ventures. If you are a startup looking to participate, you can contact MecklerMedia here: [email protected]
The event should be quite a large one, with MecklerMedia CEO Alan Meckler recently tweeting that registrations for Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara are running at 400% of last year’s thus far. We will be there and hope to see you all there. Let us know if you plan on attending these events in a couple of months. Discuss in the Inside 3D Printing forum at 3DPB.com.
